Throughout the house, we chose a modern, fresh new paint scheme, stained the existing parquet wood floors in beautiful medium walnut, and thoughtfully selected lighting fixtures as the statement jewelry. Maverick Design understood the transformative power of lighting and used it to accentuate architectural details. We chose fixtures that complemented the home's aesthetic and added a touch of contemporary flair. From exquisite, polished brass chandeliers in the dining room to sleek pendant lights in the kitchen nook, each lighting choice enhanced the space and created a harmonious blend of old and new.
In addition, Maverick Design decided to preserve and enhance the existing kitchen cabinets and give them a facelift. Recognizing the craftsmanship of the original cabinets, we saw an opportunity to improve their appeal by painting them in a muted sage accent color. This simple yet effective update breathed new life into the kitchen, instantly making it a focal point. To further elevate the cabinets' aesthetic, decorative brass hardware was added, providing a touch of elegance and tying in with the home's historical charm. Completing the kitchen transformation, a beautiful period brass wall-mounted faucet was installed, marrying the functionality of modern plumbing with the vintage charm of the space.

We kept the period colorful black and yellow tiles and mint green plumbing fixtures in the bathroom, recognizing their historical significance and unique charm. However, we wanted to infuse a modern touch to keep the space fresh and updated. Through the art of staging, they strategically placed contemporary art, accessories, and lighting alongside the vintage tiles. This fusion of old and new resulted in a captivating bathroom that seamlessly combined the original colorful tiles with modern elements, creating a nostalgic and contemporary space.
